watchdog finds new problems with fbi wiretap applications

The Justice Department inspector general has found additional failures in the FBI’s handling of a secretive surveillance program that came under scrutiny after the Russia investigation, identifying problems with dozens of applications for wiretaps in national security investigations. The audit results, announced by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, suggest that FBI errors while eavesdropping on suspected spies and terrorists extend far beyond those made during the investigation into ties between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign. They come as the FBI has scrambled to repair public confidence in how it uses its surveillance powers and as lawmakers uneasy about potential abuses have allowed certain of its tools to at least temporarily expire. The new findings are on top of problems identified last year by the watchdog office, which concluded that the FBI had…

Huawei’s chairman warned that more U.S. moves to increase pressure on the Chinese tech giant might trigger retaliation by Beijing that could damage its worldwide industry. Huawei Technologies Ltd., which makes smartphones and network equipment, reported that its 2019 sales rose by double digits despite curbs imposed in May on its access to U.S. components and technology.

None of the players care all that much that one of their coaches is a woman. As for the girls she encounters, they care very much that one of the coaches is a woman. “I’ve had quite a few people reach out that their daughters are like glued to the television watching baseball now or their daughters know that there’s some sort of way that they can get into baseball, they don’t have to pick softball,”Folden said.“I’ve heard that from quite a few people, actually.” Major League Baseball is pushing the same message. Recognizing the importance of representation when it comes to growing the game, the commissioner’s…

It’s a project that forces listeners to seek freedom in chaos, at a time when this value seems especially pertinent for the world. FIVE FACTS: 1. Donald McKinley Glover Jr. was born at Edwards Air Force Base, California, on September 25, 1983. 2.
